Time and Cookies

There are moments when time finds us present with each other—with the urge to make something, to stand still in between the enormous amounts of busy. So with butter, sugar, vanilla, flour, loose and falling through our fingers, we rolled, shaped, and baked—colored each cookie with sparkle and shine. We made a pleasant mess and shared it with everyone.

“There was a mood of magic and frenzy to the room. Crystalline swirls of sugar and flour still lingered in the air like kite tails. And then there was the smell-the smell of hope, the kind of smell that brought people home.”  -Sarah Addison Allen

    I’m on my fourth batch of cookies, and it’s not even Christmas Eve. Help!

      Ha, that’s great, you’re on a roll! Wow. Just keep baking; once you start, it’s hard to stop (that is until the dough is gone). What kind of cookies are you making?

        Snowball cookies (butter cookies with the powdered sugar). And when that’s not enough of a heart attack, I’ll toss in a batch of oatmeal toffee, just for the non-seasonal fun of it.

        Oh wow, look at you. Sounds like a butter fest (cardiovascular alert) indeed. The oatmeal toffee sound really good. I like that you’re doing something different. Just keep baking…and most of all have fun. Enjoy.
